Lumie Clear Review:
After replying to the rallying call of an enviously clear skinned BBB, I took on the challenge of giving the Lumie Clear a good old test.
Now I’m not going to sit here and claim I have the world’s worst skin, but during the early part of this year it certainly took a turn for the worse. Not being someone who has ever had to worry about acne, it was a bit of a shock to the system.
Lumie Clear claims that in clinical trials, using phototherapy…red and blue lights for you and I…It will “reduce inflammation and provide noticeable results in four weeks and show significant improvement in overall appearance of skin in 12 weeks”.
This appealed to me because it A) doesn’t involve any chemicals, who wants to keep ploughing different lotions and potions onto their skin if it’s as volatile already? B) Its pain free…definitely one up on laser and acid peels.
With the promise of clearer skin fresh in my mind I embarked on a Lumie adventure. Now I admit we didn’t get off to the best start, I sat down in front of the machine in the orange protective goggles and wondered what on earth I was getting myself into. Looking like an extra from Dexter’s Laboratory didn’t help either. The Machine itself is a neat egg shaped design that almost instilled a confidence in me due to its clinical and professional air…I’m a sucker for aesthetics.
Another BIG drawback to the Lumie Clear is the commitment factor. I’m constantly moaned at for my limited attention span, so committing to sit still in front of this for 15 minutes everyday was something special! Over the first few weeks I found it hard to get into a routine but it slowly just fell into place, even wearing the goggles…
I can safely say after 12 weeks I’ve noticed an improvement in the condition of my skin and I almost feel like its back to its usual self. I’m not going to lie and say I haven’t had a single spot since I began the Lumie mission but it’s going in the right direction.
If you can get over the initial rigmarole and place Lumie into your skincare routine, you just might be onto a winner. Patience is key here; don’t expect to see results overnight! You just might end up with Lumie-nous skin…sorry I couldn’t resist.
Lumie Clear costs £149 and is available from www.lumie.com, Boots and John Lewis.
